Sliding roofing platform in Berlin

This project includes the design, production and delivery of a sliding roofing platform for DB Regio AG in its Berlin-Lichtenberg workshop.

At rest, or to move the roofing platform, the swing-out railings are parallel to the direction of travel and form the front guard rail of the roofing platform on the track side. The railing is manually swung out for work on the train roof.

All accessible rear and side areas equipped with fixed railings.

The accessible areas of the roofing platforms are made from stud plate, the thickness and material according to the structural design.
The adjustable height lifting platform and platform railings are made from aluminium.
The vertical telescopic movement of the work platform is achieved by means of a manual crank mechanism operated from the ground.
The work platform is guided by means of sections guided within each other, virtually free of play.
There are mechanical end stops for the lifting movement
